Hi! One of the conditions I have is Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) I often show more compulsive traits than obsessive. For example: I get intrusive thoughts that tell me something that makes absolutely no sense but my brain tells me to do the command anyway... Like yesterday I woke up at like 2 am with this intrusive thought that told me that unless I run a mile my family will die. and if I don't follow the thought then I have an impending sense of doom and end up with an anxiety attack. what helps calm these thoughts down besides meds?

    doing exposure therapy helps with compulsions. fact checking can be helpful with intrusive thoughts. and also using coping skills that help with anxiety can help ease the anxiety that comes with ocd thoughts
